Blake Lewi$$$ Needs to Pay His Taxe$$$

| Filed under: Blake Lewis


Back in July, the IRS filed a $124,798 lien against season six American Idol runner-up Blake Lewis for owed income taxes from 2007 - the year he appeared on Idol.

His reps insist that everything has been "resolved", however, it was discovered this morning that according to the LA County Recorder's office, a lien release, which would prove the debt had been paid off, has not been filed.


Better get that second album out and start paying the government back. If you need some help collecting extra funds, call Fantasia Barrino: she's done this a few times before herself!

Another Idol DROPPED!

| Filed under: Blake LewisAmerican Idol


It's cursed!

American Idol has had more failures in its history than success stories.

For every Carrie Underwood there's three [fill in the blank]!

Former Idol alum Blake Lewis, who came in the top two of the show, is joining the list of post A.I. losers.

Through a MySpace bulletin to his "friends", Lewis says he is "sorry to inform you guys on some bad news."

His tour has been cut short, apparently due to his management and record label, as he claims to be in the process of finding both new management and a new label.

Poor guy!

He apologizes to his fans and everyone who bought tickets.

He was on tour?

And people bought tickets for it????? Ha!
